Default Dory Previn died this week

RIP Dory Previn 2-14-12

It was Whitney who shocked us, but I will miss Dory's music much much more.

One of the great songwriters of our time. So much heartbreak that she turned into wonderful honest songs! Lady with a Braid, Beware of Young Girls, Scared to Be Alone.....

Her songs were all perfect stories about someone real, something real, feeling real.

If you have a favorite, add it to the thread!


Twenty Mile Zone
I was riding in my car
Screaming at the night
Screaming at the dark
Screaming at fright
I wasn't doing nothing
Just drive about
Screaming at the dark
Letting it out
That's all I was doing
Just letting it out

Well along comes a motorcycle
Very much to my surprise
I said officer was I speeding
I couldn't see his eyes
He said no you weren't speeding
And he felt where his gun was hung
He said lady you were screaming
At the top of your lung
And you were
Doing it along
You were doing it alone
You were screaming in your car
In a twenty-mile zone
You were doing it alone
You were doing it alone
You were screaming

I said I'll roll up all my windows
Don't want to disturb the peace
I'm just a creature
Who is looking
For a little release
I said
And what's so wrong with screaming
Don't you do it at your games
When the quarterback
Breaks an elbow
When the boxer beats and maims
But you were
Doing it alone
You were doing it alone
You were screaming in your car
In a twenty-mile zone
You were doing it alone
You were doing it alone
You were screaming

I said animals roar
When they feel like
Why can't we do that too
Instead of screaming
Banzai baby
In the war in the human zoo

He said I got to take you in now
Follow me right behind
And let's have no more screaming
Like you're out of your mind
So he climbed aboard his cycle
And his red-eyed headlight beamed
And his motor started spinning
And his siren screamed

He was doing it alone
He was doing it alone
He was screaming on his bike
In a twenty-mile zone
He was doing it alone
He was doing it alone
He was screaming
I was doing it alone
I was doing it alone
I was screaming in my car
In a twenty-mile zone
I was doing it alone
I was doing it alone
I was screaming
We were doing it together
We were doing it together
We were screaming at the dark
In a twenty-mile zone
We were doing it together
We were doing it together
We were screaming
We were doing it together
We were doing it
Together
Alone
In a twenty-mile zone
